Hubble would have been proud. This telescope is the best product made in the US in a long time - it sat in Ball's warehouse for ten years before it was launched and despite a few adjustments here and there to keep up with the times and needs of NASA, the lady has been kicking full steam ever since. I remember how they said it would never work.

Here´s one of the best sites ever: they upload an space/earth image taken by Hubble daily. It´s fantastic, wonderful to see these images. Makes one humble - usually Earth would be the size of a fraction of a pixel in contrast to nebulaes/galaxies... Hubble is one of the things that really the world has to thanks US for.
